About Us / Patrons
As a not-for-profit and for-purpose organisation established to promote and service the Australian fashion and retail industries, it is with great pleasure that the Festival introduced the ‘Dress Circle’ Patrons program in 2015.
An honorary circle of influencers and supporters, patrons play a vital role in the future of Australian fashion supporting the Festival as a platform to nurture designers, artists and the industry. Through advocacy and financial assistance, the patrons help enable our incredible design talent to maximise their potential throughout the year.
